Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: MY BROTHER MONTE AND ALL FORMULITES

Good post, very inquisitive.

Weirs interest in hangin out a few weeks a year with the likes of George Shultz to further his political agenda and build stronger ties to Washington, or all the other high-powered artists, business, media, and technology leaders is his own business; though it's safe to say that these connection's further his personal social, global, environmental, and political concerns for which he indeed is deeply passionate. He is not one to waste his influence and is a hard working individual who has earned every penny along the path.

In terms of the Bohemian Grove specifically, i don't have enough first hand information to form an opinion other than to say that several of Weir's closest friends in Marin are very strong enviromentalists as is he.

The Grateful Dead transcended music and became a way of life for many of us out here in Northern California. Just take a look at all the philanthropic work these folks have performed over the years.

Therefore these lifestyle and intellectual issues are very much a part of The Grateful Dead and should be acceptable dialouge here at the Forum. Sometimes it's good to balance out the abundance of music dialouge and speculation with other interesting topics that are an appropriate fit with this wide-sweeping agenda.

When i first arrived here late last fall at the Archive GD Forum, i made the grand mistake of thinking that everyone who appreciates the Grateful Deads music was "like-minded" and that the so called "off topic" subjects such as art, film, politics and world events would share a common interest and mentality. I was horribly mistaken.

BTW, your brother Monte seems like a good man, he is extremely passionate and always has something interesting to showcase.

Let Monte know that when you drive the 101 out of Marin south across the Golden Gate through the City and down the Peninsula towards Palo Alto, just before you arrive in Menlo Park, that original "Ampex" sign from 1959 on the west side of the freeway in front of the new Stanford Medical buildings is still intact and has been preserved as a testimony to the technology innovators of Silicon Valley.

If this is the case Koch, why did you delete all of the political threads from the Pub in one day and start banning? Why do you have a different standard for your own place and this place?

Skobud: I have no axe to grind with you.

Be aware though, you are beginning to sound a bit like that idiot Kochman.

Just saying.
Peace.
